Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Physical Therapy Act. Provides that the limitation on determining a differential diagnosis shall not in any manner limit a physical therapist from establishing a relevant diagnosis. In the definition of "documented current and relevant diagnosis" and in provisions concerning disciplinary actions, removes language requiring a diagnosis to be substantiated by a physician, dentist, advanced practice registered nurse, physician assistant, or podiatric physician. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
225 ILCS 90/1.2 new

In the definition of "physical therapy", provides that the limitation on determining a differential diagnosis shall not limit a physical therapist from performing an evaluation and establishing a physical therapy treatment plan (rather than performing an evaluation and establishing a relevant diagnosis). Removes language providing that a physical therapist shall refer a patient whose medical condition is determined to be beyond the scope of practice of the physical therapist to specified health care providers. Makes conforming changes in grounds for discipline. Removes the definition of "documented current and relevant diagnosis". Defines "health care professional". Further amends the Illinois Physical Therapy Act. Provides requirements for physical therapy services.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
In provisions concerning physical therapy services, removes language providing that a physical therapist will consult and collaborate with the appropriate health care professional on conditions related to temporomandibular disorder. Instead, provides that a physical therapist shall promptly consult and collaborate with the appropriate health care professional anytime a patient's condition indicates that it may be related to temporomandibular disorder so that a diagnosis can be made by that health care professional for an appropriate treatment plan.

House Floor Amendment No. 3
In provisions concerning physical therapy services, provides that a physician therapist shall refer a patient to the health care professional if the patient does not demonstrate measurable or functional improvement after 10 visits or 15 business days, whichever occurs first, and continued improvement thereafter.
